My main collecting interest has always been field gear and small personal items. These things always breathe the period since they are the items the regular soldier had to do with. I specialize in these items and strive to offer nice and interesting items.
The items offered here are all guaranteed original and unaltered period pieces produced before May 1945 unless stated otherwise.

The inside of the trousers are nicely finished with herringbone rayon material typical for Waffen-SS issue garments. The cut is typical for Waffen-SS issue Keilhosen with straight cut pockets and the back reinforcement ending at the side seams. Not to be confused with Heer/Kustenartillerie trousers! A textbook Waffen-SS M43 Keilhosen, much harder to find then a pair of Erbsentarn camouflage trousers!

  • Stunning woodwork ET64 M35 Kriegsmarine camouflage helmet found in Hoek van Holland


    A stunning woodwork ET64 M35 Kriegsmarine camouflage helmet found in the Batterie Vineta, Hoek van Holland. The helmet was picked up by a boy right after the war and has only been in one collection ever since. The helmet is in great condition with over 90% of the tan camouflage paint remaining. The original ET Kriegsmarine decal is still 100%, partially obscured by green camouflage paint. The decal has the thin black border around the eagle and the swastika has a strong, deep golden tint as would be expected of a Kriegsmarine decal. The tricolor decal has been removed, as per regulation in 1940. The back skirt is nicely named to Hernez on top of the lot number 4936. The helmet is a great example of a Coastal Artillery camouflage helmet and it would be very hard to upgrade. Especially with the provenance of the helmet being picked up from a certain (and famous) Coastal Artillery Battery Vineta in Hoek van Holland, the Netherlands. This helmet would be a prime piece in any coastal artillery collector!

A great example of a shipboard grey camouflage helmet with 85% of the original camouflage paint still remaining. Under the shipboard grey helmet one can see a green and textured paint finish which indicates the helmet was reissued two times. Also the former decal can easily be spotted right through the paint. The helmet is fitted with a late war M31 liner which has a newspaper sewn inside for insulation. The liner was marked with Kopierstift to the name Stockinger. The chinstrap was found on the helmet and is most likely a locally made replacement strap.
